As much as I’d like to think our manager is right, we all have to be honest; he’s talking out of his Arse-nal!!
We have won just one of our last four Premier League fixtures and that victory was a 1-0 over QPR, which needed a moment of magic from our captain to seal victory.
Hardly Premier League Champions form eh?
To be honest, we haven’t looked like serious title contenders since the beginning on the season and no doubt, tomorrow we will witness another display that will fail to convince otherwise.
I was surprised to read Arsene Wenger latest comment about tomorrow’s fixture:
It is not the only game any more because you have Chelsea and Man City coming in, with Liverpool still there. But it is a game that is watched all over the world.
We do (lift ourselves), we think we are on a similar level. I still think that when we have everybody available we are a strong force in this league. That’s why it is important that we fight very hard not to drop points.
Two things from that comment don’t make any sense whatsoever!
A) Just looking back on our last few showings, when have we actually fought hard not to drop points??
B) Similar level to Manchester United? I don’t think so!
The comment that makes me sad: ‘if we have everybody available we are a strong force in this league’.
We haven’t had the fortune of fielding our strongest side since the beginning of the season. As each game comes and each games goes, we seem to lose another player through injury, yet still nothing is done about it in this transfer window.
We allow players to be loaned out to help other clubs, yet we don’t try and get a loan or two in, just to ‘tie us over’ – but we have talked about that since the 1st of January, so I won’t ramble on again today.
We all know that Arsene Wenger is trying to sound positive before Manchester United come to visit, what else can he do? He can hardly go on record to say that all things look bleak and he’s dreading another battering on Sunday can he?
After all, he is responsible for what we are going through.
It’s time to face facts, we are struggling!
Struggling to defend as a unit, struggling to create clear-cut chances and even when we do, we are struggling to convert them. We maybe not be title contenders right now and I think most of us have accepted that, but we are not far off from being there if only…
If only Stan and his merry men could see just how close we are, maybe if they could they would just take that one step forward and make changes and bring in additions.
If they could do that, I think we’d all be a whole lot happier, including most of the current players….
Until that day, it’s going to be very sad times for all of us Gooners as we watch another season pass us by….…
Have a good day all…..
